As you may have read about in either my post back in December or our recent press release with Pearson, VitalSource continues its commitment to improving and simplifying access to course materials. We’re happy to report back some numbers based on recent industry leading improvements in removing courseware access codes and simplifying faculty and student access to course materials.
At VitalSource, we believe in delivering a great user experience on all of our platforms, which means making our solutions easy and efficient to use. I’m excited to share with you some recent enhancements made to our Sampling Portal.
For publishers and content creators, it’s all about learning:
• How does our content improve learning outcomes?
• How can we ensure that the right content is in the right course?
Publishers and institutions agree on a simple formula: quality content, plus quality instruction, plus quality student engagement equal student success. Understanding exactly how students engage with content is key to improving each piece of this formula.
Not all educational content is created equal. Content used for learning anatomy requires lots of images and diagrams. Content used for learning to speak another language needs audio recordings. And math content usually requires math notation.
Since its launch in 2016, VitalSource Content Studio™ has become a valued tool for creators of learning content in higher education, K12, and corporate training—content such as IT training modules, leadership curriculum, an interactive workbook on human anatomy, computer engineering courseware, and more.
